"This is completely unfair": Biden rebuked Russia for her treatment of Navalny

On April 17, 2021, Joe Biden rebuked Russia for its treatment of convicted Alexei Navalny. The US President spoke about this at a golf club in Wilmington, Delaware, amid reports of the opposition's deteriorating health, writes the American media organization Politico.

This is totally unfair

- Biden briefly commented.

In January, a court arrested 44-year-old Navalny and sent him to the Matrosskaya Tishina pre-trial detention center after he returned to Russia from Germany, where he had been undergoing treatment for poisoning for several months. Navalny accuses the Russian authorities of poisoning, but Moscow denies everything. He was quickly sentenced to more than two years in prison on what he called trumped-up charges.

On March 31, Navalny went on a hunger strike, and on April 16, announced on his Instagram that the official threatened him with force-feeding if he did not start eating.

And then she told me in detail about the joys of force-feeding. Straightjacket and other treats

- Navalny described the situation.

Navalny went on a hunger strike after being denied a visit to a doctor when he complained of back pain and loss of sensation in his legs. Navalny's wife reported that he had problems with speech.

On April 17, Navalny's doctor, Yaroslav Ashikhmin, wrote on his Facebook page that the oppositionist may be on the verge of death.

Our patient can die at any time

- the doctor specified.

Biden's words came just days after he introduced new sanctions against the Russian Federation and expelled Russian diplomats. In response, Moscow expelled American diplomats and banned a number of US officials from entering Russia, including Attorney General Merrick Garland.

I made it clear to President Putin that we could go further, but I decided not to. I decided to be proportionate. The US does not seek to start a cycle of escalation and conflict with Russia. We want stable, predictable relationships

- said Biden on April 15 in his speech, in which he did not even say a word about Navalny.

In late January, Biden raised concerns about the Kremlin’s attitude toward Navalny during his first conversation with Vladimir Putin. The new US administration also condemned Russia for the arrests of thousands of demonstrators who supported Navalny in street actions, the American publication recalled and summed up.

    How unfair, it would be in Gunatonamo, and try some water for another month.
    By the way, those arrested for the storming of the Capitol should be released and apologized.

    I’m one hundred percent sure if journalists ask Biden who Navalny is. he will immediately fall into a stupor laughing and will not be able to answer anything, because who has no idea who it is lol I remember our prankers joked about a black senator, and from the rostrum of the Congress she began to demand that Russia withdraw its troops from Limpopo. laughing

    and on April 16, he said on his Instagram that the official threatened him with force-feeding,

    What kind of official are we talking about? Does she have a name and position?

    He was quickly sentenced to more than two years in prison on what he called trumped-up charges.

    The situation with Navalny's film about the palace in Gelendzhik was left without a legal assessment. If Navalny lied in the film (to put it mildly), then why is he not tried for libel?
    And if he told the truth, then it would be necessary to explain to the "city and the world", whose palace is this really? The mumbling of Mr. R. does not attract an explanation.

      Why do you need to know what kind of official is this? This is usually what Navalny's supporters crave. If this were true, then they themselves called and yelled. And about the palace, do not disgrace yourself. It's not enough for you that the palace is not actually completed? Not satisfied with Rotenberg's muttering. Well, these are your personal problems.

        If your "train of thought" is completed, then I do not need to know anything at all. Written clumsily and in a hurry. It's obvious to me.

        And about the palace, do not disgrace

        In my humble opinion, someone else was disgraced here, who in such situations always claims that he is not him, and the horse (palace) is also not his.

        Well, these are your personal problems.

        I don't see any problems in front of me.
        Except for one thing: through the Internet, you have to virtually intersect with different characters who imagine themselves to be oraculs.

      Will serve this term, then it will be possible to add for libel.

    Actually, Russia in general, and Putin in particular, is long overdue to understand that it is not for us to compete in verbiage with the Empire of Lies! We do not have a tradition of lying, distorting, and confidently asserting “with a high degree of probability” about the terrible crimes of “partners”. And in "free democracies" - this is the norm of communication!
    You should never again be led on smiling promises, such as "we want good relations", or "we will not expand NATO, just remove the wall in Germany" ... You need to work with pseudo-democracies only on the basis of their specific deeds and actions.
    Our gullibility costs us dear. And they are constantly ahead of us, they lie openly and brazenly to the whole world, according to the principle - today we lie, tomorrow - no one will remember that this is a lie.
    And, you need to work ahead of the curve, and not make excuses for what you didn’t do. Skripali, a coward (sorry) Navalny, Boeing, now the explosion in the Czech Republic is an obvious "stuffing" in order to invent another reason for punishing Russia.
